Taking Down The Snow Fencing

We have reached the point in time of the winter season where we are no longer concerned about sustaining snow cover. The snow fencing that was installed at some of the more exposed areas on the course has been taken down.

It is at this time of year that the moisture from the snow is welcome, but extended periods of cover are no longer in the best interest of healthy turf. There are areas on the golf course that are beginning to show signs of activity and a slowly starting to green up. This unwanted snow cover not only increase disease pressure, but also will cause a further delay in the green up process.
